internet security has always been important, but never so much as in the #web3 space. in this short 🧵 we will take a look at some of the (free) tools to keep you, your digital identity and your funds safe, let's dive in 👇
1. browsers; what a majority of people are familiar with and probably use, @googlechrome it is a great browser that is compatible with most computer OS, but on it's own needs help in the security department- luckily we have plugins, which we will get to shortly
if you prefer a Web3 browser with preset, but customizable security features @brave is the best choice. this browser is not only compatible with Chrome extensions, it comes baked in with anti-phishing and ad block- though they reward users who wish to view ads with (that do not

Let’s talk about the software developed by #Ukrainian engineers to assist UA against #Russian aggression (Delta, MilChat, etc)
I have been researching this topic, their development cycles, and use in combat; and I want to share with you some findings.

I would like to make it clear that this reflection comes from #OSINT, and that this thread will not compromise #Ukrainian #OPSEC
There could be interpretation errors (most sources were in Ukrainian, a language I do not speak), so corrections are welcome
(2/20) Image
First, it should be noted that none of these tools could be considered a #Wunderwaffe
They will undoubtedly help #Ukraine in its war effort, but having them will not win the war. This software will be an element to be taken into account in combination with others factors

Store files as videos, mix them with all Santa Barbara or Supernatural episodes and upload them somewhere in private folder.…

Right after that, erase data from the computer, then again download 200+ GBs of webjunk, then repeat the procedure.…

[#OSINT|#OPSEC|#DATALEAK] When you don’t renew a domain name that you use for email it creates the opportunity for a bad actor to take over accounts registered with email addresses at that domain.

Dataleaks allow a bad actor to use this attack vector at scale. Exporting unique domains from the email addresses, filtering by occurrence then running a whois service over the top of them is low effort.

A couple of years ago i spotted this with a senior developers Github account who was working at a well known tech company.

Generally speaking if you found a popular repo a bad actor could in theory introduce malicious code exploiting the dependency chain.

People ask me about my relationship to Mr. @Snowden, well, I have endless respect for this man, he is a true expert in #OpSec, I have made several references to his advices in my articles, for example - here:…
And that was it - we never saw each other or communicated even online. Maybe someday we will, I don't know. He doesn’t know either.

Check out my blog…
It is important to add that I consider it my goal to exist legally and I do not accept breaking the law (any UN country). I am apolitical and do not represent any governmental or affiliated entity. My nickname is an attempt to play with archaisms, I am a simulacrum. Peace! ❤️

Surprisingly, few people know that anyone can effectively defend against sim swapping…

And yes, it works both in the US and worldwide on almost all mobile operators!

Check out my thread below ⬇️

To freeze your SIM, contact your mobile phone carrier and ask them to never make changes to your phone number or SIM unless you physically show up to a specific store with at least two forms of identification!

That is a standard that has been tested by telecommunications operators in the US, the UK, Poland, and China. You just need to insist on it or visit the head office, and I’m sure that the support manager on the phone mayn’t know about it!

Many of us travel by airplane and many of us have to deal with carrying luggage. That's a pretty serious threat to your #OpSec unless of course your computer or phone has potentially valuable information on it.

And if you don't fly, you probably travel from point A to point B in some other way - by car, train, and so on.

Surprisingly few people know that anyone can effectively defend against sim swapping. It works both in the US and worldwide in almost all mobile operators!

But how? Check out my thread 👇

To lock down your SIM, contact your mobile phone carrier. Ask them to NEVER make changes to your phone number/SIM unless you physically show up to a specific store with at minimum two forms of identification.

This (should) prevent hackers from calling up AT&T or T-Mobile or Vodafone, claiming to be you, and asking them to port your phone number to a new phone.

Getting started with a new #OSINT investigation?

Prepare a browser with bookmarks + extensions.

Some fabulous StartMe's:… by @OSINT_Tactical

I also use @osintcombine 's OSINT Stack:
Simply import & go.

Also add @IntelTechniques Tools page:

Don't forget to add a couple of those StartMe's.

I made a separate Startme-page with just #OSINT extensions/add-ons.
Add & pin the ones you like.…

As a @brave user, I use a one-time sync between my standard #OSINT browser (not 4 investigations) and a new browser(profile), syncing only bookmarks and extensions. Timesaver!

Once done, I remove the sync-chain from the new browser.

If you meet someone, for example at a random conference, who says he is me, you can safely call him a liar.

I am generally against public mass meetings of those who, for some reason, consider themselves to be part of the crypto community…

That’s why I never attend meet-ups, conferences and other mass meetings and suggest you doing the same! Or ask to proof it via my Twitter.

1/ Mika Mäenpää (@MMaenpaa1, go follow him!) has posted an excellent assessment of the situation near Kharkiv from a military professional's perspective. It deserves to be read widely, so I hope he'll forgive me for doing a quick translation of it into English.
2/ From @MMaenpaa1:
I was going to write this when the attack on Kharkiv started, but then I said let's wait and see. The Ukrainian counter-attack seems to be a prime example of brilliant use of intelligence, deception and information warfare: operational intelligence.
3/ Military action: since the summer, Ukraine has concentrated its fire and (visible) troop operations on the southern part of the front. In particular, HIMARS, which gave the impression of preparing the battlefield, ...

Aioin kirjoittaa tämän kun hyökkäys Harkovan suuntaan alkoi, mutta sitten totesin, että katsotaan vielä hetki. Ukrainan vastahyökkäys näyttää olevan huippuluokan esimerkki loistavan tiedustelun, harhautuksen ja informaatiosodankäynnin hyödyntämisestä: Operativisesta älystä. 1/x
Sotilaallinen toiminta: Ukraina on keskittänyt tulekäytön ja joukkojen (näkyvän) operoinnin kesästä alkaen eteläiselle rintaman osalle. Erityisesti HIMARS:t, jolla annettiin kuva taistelukentän valmistelusta, mutta joka osoittautui pikemminkin EBO:a tyyppseksi vaikuttamiseksi 2/x
Ukraina on antanut koko kesän kuvaa julkisuudessa, että se hyökkää Herssonin suunnassa ja että se on sille tärkein suunta. Tätä narratiivia on tukenut jopa presidentti. Hyökkäyksen alettua Herssonin suunnassa asiaa korostetiin vetoamalla #OPSEC:n, ja kuitenkin kuvaa "vuosi"🤔 3/x
